And his name is Rover,
And when he follows her to school,
She'd like to bat him over.

By looking through the "Allen Re-
view," I see that former McMain-
ians are doing very well there. Fran-
ces Fort received a high average of
9564 while many other did almost
as well. Among the officers of the
post-graduates are Grace Laguens,
Clare Sulli, and Shirley Scanlan.
From their exchange column, I bring
you these two sallies:
Teacher: Give me a sentence with
an object, Johnny.
Johnny: Teacher, you are beauti-
Teacher: What is the object?
Johnny: A good mark.
Here's to the girls--the young ones!
Not too young,
For the good die young
And nobody wants a dead one.
Here's to the girls-the old ones!
Not too old,
For the old dye, too-
And nobody wants a dyed one.

Congratulations to the "Review"!
A very enjoyable magazine of heart-
warming short stories, lyrical poetry,
and realistic cuts. I only regret their
not having a joke column for it
makes it hard on this poor editor to
quote-as the stories and most poems
are too long. Here is a timely piece
which is not so long.
On earth there are men
Who are bitter and cruel,
Who struggle like beasts
In an endless duel.
Who fail to see
The principles of life-
The road to peace
Instead of strife.
In the sky there are stars
And planets and sun,
Which with constancy
Their courses run.
Their closeness not marred
Their light not dimmed
For men there's a plan
As there is for stars-
If links could be forged
Instead of bars.

Making a good impression with its
colorful red, white, and blue cover of
figures representing winter sports,
"The Canary and Blue" plunged into
the interesting material which com-
prised its book. There was a charm-
ing article which, although it is writ-
ten for the opposite sex, should be
amusing to you.
How to Lose a Girl Friend
A recent issue of the "Canary"
presented an article, "How to Get a
The "Canary" once again comes
to the aid of its male wall-flowers
with the five steps on how to lose a
Step 1. Introduce her to your
best friend. He may be tall, dark,
etc., but after having looked at you
for a while she appreciates the
change. If he is on some athletic
team or his dad is the head of some-
thing important, it helps.
Step 2. If she asks you to a for-
mal or sorority dance, show up in
informal clothes, take her in a trol-
ley, insist on being the life of the
party, then escort the fair damsel
to a dinner and fed her hamburgers.
After that, walk her home through
the dark streets and hold her hand
and look at the moon while you dis-
cuss Einstein's theory. This will do
the trickg she will never see you
Step 3. Brag about the date you
had with a pretty blonde three years
ago, or the swell times you have
been having at the past five sessions
of summer school. A
Step 4. Sit before the fire-side
with herg toast marshmallows till she
is ready to burst, then hold her hand,
whisper something silly in her ear,
and, when she giggles, count her mo-
lars and tell her how many she has.
Step 5. There is no last step. By
this time you have lost your girl
friend. She is ready for a sanitarium
or the "Court of Human Relations."
It seems as though "The Canary
and Blue" has a fitting description
for us. We may not like it, but, then,
isn't it true?
A Modern High School Girl
She walks with an air of authority-
A boy to carry her booksg
She never has a care or worry,
Her greatest pride is her looks.
Her face is smeared with powder,
Her lips are painted red:
Her waistline measures just fifteen,
She doesn't look as if she's fed.
And though my compliments are few,
I admit we all have larksg
But I'd trade my lunch and study
If I had half her marks!
Well-that is the last time that
will apply to me for in a few weeks
I shall be no longer a high school
girl. Goodbye- Mt'

Fair lily, like a nymph of old,
Thy regal beauty doth unfold
In sheltered spot when gentle breeze
Gaily rustles through the trees.
